The Hyundai Ioniq 5 Is Car and Driver’s EV of the Year

If you want to know why the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is our EV of the Year, just look at it. Is this not the coolest new design on the road? Just when you thought the two-box crossover shape was permanently consigned to amorphous wind-tunnel blobbiness, along comes this collection of slashes and rectangles, all rakish and defiant but somehow still scoring a relatively slippery 0.29 coefficient of drag. This is high design for the masses, right down to the exotic-looking matte-gray paint—a $1000 option. Yes, that’s all. The Ioniq 5’s pricing, which starts at $41,245, is the only thing about it that’s resolutely normal.
